Patrick Amiot has recently published a book that is proving to be quite popular with artists and art professionals. The Art of Selling Your Art: A blog about the art industry and creating marketing plans for your artwork is a comprehensive guide to the ins and outs of the art world today.
Art marketing strategies are many and varied with much room for debate and disagreement. However, there are some basic rules that, if followed, will help you gain success as an artist in any field of art. Patrick has a lot to say on this subject, so I encourage you to take a look at his book. But, if you’re in a hurry, here are some things to keep in mind when promoting your artwork.
Artists need to develop a solid marketing plan. This plan should include the following:
1. A full understanding of your target audience – who they are, what they like and dislike, their habits and preferences, etc. The better you know your target audience, the easier it will be to market to them. If you don’t take the time to do this step now and figure out who your audience is then you’re setting yourself up for failure later on down the road.
2. Consideration of how you will promote your work – where you will do

So come on over — it’s free! Join me as we discover more together about the Art of Selling Your Art.
Art has been around since the beginning of time and it has always been used to express emotion, religion, or just to make someone smile. Art plays a huge part in everyone’s lives every day whether they realize it or not. In today’s society there are many different types of art, such as paintings, drawings, photography, and sculptures. Each one of these art forms has its own history and meaning behind these pieces. The most popular art form is paintings which have been around for hundreds of years. What makes the art world so powerful is that anything can be considered art from sand castles to a sculpture of your favorite celebrity.
There are many different factors that go into making a piece of art successful and selling it for a good price. Understanding the factors that make up an artwork is just as important as creating the work itself because without knowing how to market your work you will never sell it for a decent price. There are five things that make up every artwork no matter what type of medium you use: Subject Matter: For example if you were to paint a picture about “The Little Red Hen” then obviously the subject matter would be “The Little Red Hen”. The main character in this book is named “The Little Red Hen” who wants to grow wheat but doesn’t
Whatever you want to do, whether it is art or business or something else, you have to learn how to sell it. If you just create and don’t sell, you won’t be successful. As the old saying goes, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does that make a sound?”
Of course it does. But what does that say about the sound? It says that if you don’t get your work out to people who can appreciate it, there is no noise. Not every artist has the ability to market their work. They either don’t want to or they are terrible at it. This can be a huge mistake and limit your success at being an artist.
Telling people how good your work is doesn’t mean lying. In fact, not telling them is why so many artists fail when they put their art up for sale. Don’t be afraid of selling yourself and your art. You will not go broke doing this if you know what you are doing.
There is no better time than now to become a professional artist, with the internet and social media allowing you to reach people all over the world. However, being a professional artist can be a struggle; even if you are talented, it can be hard to make money from your artwork.
The first step is to pick the right kind of art for you and your work environment. Choosing the wrong kind of art may lead to frustration or failure. For example, you may love painting and have lots of time on your hands, but if making money from art is what you want then you need to choose a different type of art.
T-shirts are one of the most popular choices for making money selling art online as they are easy to produce. There are many companies that will allow you to upload your own artwork onto their site where they will print it onto t-shirts automatically. The great thing about this business model is that it allows you to make a profit selling only one shirt at a time.
Art prints are another common type of art that people try selling online. Art prints come in all shapes and sizes and they can be made from any type of media including pictures, paintings and drawings. Like t-shirts, people do not have to manually make the product
First, you need to know what art is and what it is not. Art is an important part of human culture and history, but it’s not everything. Art is a way of communicating something, and the meaning of a work is the effect it has on people who see it.
A painting isn’t about paint or canvas; it’s about how the painting makes you feel. A sculpture isn’t about metal or wood or stone; it’s about how the sculpture makes you feel. A song isn’t about notes or chords; it’s about how the song makes you feel.
So if people don’t feel something when they see your art, then no matter how beautiful your work is, it isn’t art.
What kinds of feelings do people get from art? There are two opposite kinds: love and fear. Love includes awe, pleasure, joy, contentment, admiration and sexual attraction. Fear includes anger, disgust, hatred, anxiety and sadness. All other feelings fall somewhere in between these two extremes.
Art can also be functional in ways that have nothing to do with emotion: for example, as tools for hunting or for warding off evil spirits. However, all such functional uses fall outside the scope of this book.”
So, if you are looking for some artistic expression to display on your walls, or perhaps as a creative gift for someone or as a prize for a contest winner or for any other reason, you might want to look at my art.
TIP : Art is sold by the artist, not the gallery; so when planning your purchase be sure to contact me directly and we can work together to make something special just for you!
If you are looking for a “one of kind” hand-painted piece of art that is unique and different from anything that you will find elsewhere then be sure to contact me as I have many such pieces available!
Sometimes abstract art is called non-objective art because it does not depict any recognizable objects. Abstraction has been used by artists since prehistoric times and began with simple forms such as lines and circles. In modern times artists have used abstraction referencing symbols, thoughts and feelings without necessarily referring to an object in nature. The paintings in this category are all abstract in nature; however, each one is also very different from the others.
Other types of abstract art may include movement or use unusual materials. Some may involve materials or techniques that result in an textured or tactile surface. Others may create a sense of movement or rhythm
